Tulsi Gabbard Announces That She Is Leaving the Democratic Party

Al Jazeera, October 11, 2022

A Democratic former representative from Hawaii has announced that she is leaving the party, calling it an “elitist cabal of warmongers”, and inviting her “common sense independent minded” colleagues to join her.

Tulsi Gabbard, a former United States presidential candidate, in a video published on Twitter on Tuesday said that the Democratic Party is driven by “cowardly wokeness”.

“I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic Party that is now under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness, who divide us by racializing every issue and stoke anti-white racism,” Gabbard said.

Gabbard added that the party works to “demonize the police and protect criminals at the expense of law-abiding Americans”.


Gabbard represented Hawaii’s 2nd Congressional District from 2013 to 2021. In 2020, the Iraq War veteran made an unsuccessful bid for the White House.
